First, I want to thank everyone for their good thoughts. It's good to know my friends will be there to support me when it's needed.

Any remorse I might feel will be for the lack of a father/son relationship, not for Charlie being gone. To give you an idea of him here are a couple of examples of his behavior. The first time he met [livejournal.com profile] hollyqueen his words to me were "Why don't you date white women anymore?" Another time he sat with my mother and my inlaws on a summer night. In one breath he said he missed his third wife, praised the girl he was going to hit that night and then asked my mother why she wouldn't see him anymore. Real classy guy, eh?

Everyone I consider blood family shares the same name. I wasn't born as a Leber, but it's the name and identity I've chosen. Other than [livejournal.com profile] ragnorokt I have another brother and a sister out there. I don't wish them harm and I don't avoid them, but I'll never care to find them. I only wonder now because they should know that their father is dead too. The only people from that branch of the family I would like to see are my nieces and nephews from my sister. They can't be blamed for their mother's actions and I wonder what people they became. The oldest would be 32 and the youngest would be 28 I think, maybe 27. (It's easy to remember the oldest because she's almost exactly 10 years younger than me.)

This thinking about family tonight reminds me that I need to organize and type up the research that [livejournal.com profile] ragnorokt found when I was in Missouri last December. We were able to trace Remig back to when he entered the country. The next step is to make the leap to Germany and see if we can find any relations there.

My condolences--I know how it is to lose a parent and realize any chance of redeeming the relationship is gone.

What I really want to know is what was on the monument marker. I have a few more tidbits I need to send your way about the Leber's as well.

By the way, Stephanie is 10 years younger than you, Peter one year more, Samuel two years behind Peter, and Rene a year behind Sam.
